Quick Reminder
It's Time to Pre-Book Your Flu Vaccine Reservation for the 2020-2021 Flu Season

Most flu vaccine manufacturers offer the opportunity to reserve flu vaccines for the upcoming flu season. Practices that confirm their reservations by March 31, 2020 often get extended discounts, delivery commitments, a returns allowance for unused doses, and more. For more information, contact the CPP Office or your influenza vaccine manufacturer!

Most vaccines have new pricing in 2020. Here is a summary of the effective dates for all of CPP’s vendor partners:

  • Merck – effective 10/31/2019
  • Sanofi Pasteur – effective 1/1/2020
  • Pfizer – effective 2/27/2020

Managing a financially sustainable vaccine program is key to providing the most value to your practice and your patients. During price increases, check the following:

  • Invoices to make sure you’re being charged correctly;
  • Office fees to make sure they are adjusted for the price changes; and
  • Insurance payments to make sure they have adjusted accordingly. 

CPP offers several  price change management resources that are posted on the  CPP Resources Webpage to help members manage through vaccine price changes.
